Here's a 4-CD box set of amazing music - all combined into a single convenient MP3 file! It's like a cool little radio station in your pocket with an abundant supply of addictive tunes!
Trash Am Records came about because I think it's time to start paying more attention to music released under Creative Commons licenses - which allow the music to be downloaded and shared freely, including being able to play the songs on podcasts.
Most of the commercial music we all know and love is shackled under an outdated copyright and music licensing system, which makes it illegal to play on podcasts - or to share the songs with your friends. It really is a sad state of affairs.
So thank goodness so many talented musicians are releasing their songs under Creative Commons! I have been spending a huge amount of time lately on Jamendo.com to find great songs and to sequence them into compilation albums - and the result is Trash Am Records (a completely non-commercial project).
The first four records:
Trash Am #1 - Trash The Airport Meadow
Trash Am #2 - Needed The Tea Am Flimsy's
Trash Am #3 - Tribal Caffeine Mazes
Trash Am #4 - Billiard Winter Drink
The album titles, cover art, and song sequences are by me. Otherwise, I had nothing to do with the creation of these songs. Please support these artists in any way you can! (I have not contacted the artists telling them they have been included, because the time and energy that would require is beyond the scope of this project, and they have already given permission for this type of non-commercial compilation by using Creative Commons licenses).
I do plan on releasing the albums separately, but for now, enjoy this huge slab of satisfying music. My goal was to create records that I myself would crave and enjoy listening to over and over again - and in that I have succeeded. The music genres included are generally rock, pop, electronic, and eclectic.
I released the first record, Trash The Airport Meadow, on June 9, 2011. I loved it so much I decided to make a sequel - a project which began to take up more and more time and eventually lead to these three additional albums - which I am very excited about. Enjoy!

Since 2003, Frank Nora has been broadcasting his unique brand of lively, messy, stream-of-consciousness monologues to a small (but dedicated) Internet listening audience. Each show is a pleasantly insane ramble through the mysteries and pleasures of life, pop culture, current events, weirdness, technology, New York City, food, beverages, conspiracy theories, nostalgia, and oh so much more. Come join the fun - it's time for more people to tune in and discover The Frank Nora Show!
The Overnightscape Underground transmission archive collects all of Frank's shows so far (The Overnightscape, The Rampler, The Frank Nora Show, etc.) - along with shows by Frank's many radio friends on The Overnightscape Underground.
